Labour are to put law and order in the spotlight with a pledge to cut crime by 15% by 2008 if re-elected.

Labour will say crime has fallen by 30% since 1997, while setting out a 10-point plan to cut offences further.
The plan includes proposals to increase the number of community support officers (CSOs) six-fold from 4,000 to 24,000 by 2008.
Labour leader Tony Blair is expected to put a new Crime Bill - to be introduced early in the next Parliament - at the heart of efforts to reduce anti-social behaviour and crime.
